London is the official host city for the 2017 IAAF World Athletics Championships, beating Doha to the chase. The announcement was made at a meeting of the 27-member IAAF council in Monaco earlier today.
If you’re an athletics fan, or just like the idea of London once again being centre of the sporting universe for a few days, then why not celebrate at some suitably named venues around town this weekend. Here are our top five suggestions:
- The Runner Bar at Greens, The City
- The Golden Hinde, Bankside
- The Only Running Footman, Mayfair
- The Three Hammers, NW7
- The Bolt Hole, The City
Failing that, you could always just raise a pint of London Pride at your local!
